Occupying the governor’s office, demonstrating and wearing hoodies is fine as a way of protesting what happened to Trayvon Martin, but it will not bring about change. As black people, we need to keep within us the anger that we feel now and express that anger at the ballot box in November 2014.
The anger that we felt when President Obama was insulted, lied about and humiliated during his first term in office caused us to go to the polls in record numbers to ensure his reelection. Our present anger at the George Zimmerman verdict must be used in the same way in the next election to remove Gov. Scott and those others responsible for the law that allowed Zimmerman to shoot Trayvon Martin and be found not guilty.
Stay cool, remember and be patient.
